The Failure of Ideological Materialism

Materialists view religion as a human invention and regard those who believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God as deluded or naive. Their confidence rests on the assumption that this Gospel is invented. Their confidence is easily shaken because nothing in Reality supports this assumption.

Reality supports the view that everything exists by the Word of God and that the Word of God has fulfilled all things in the Son of God, Jesus Christ. St. Anthony the Great articulated this philosophically when he wrote: "God’s providence controls the universe. It is present everywhere. Providence is the sovereign Logos of God, imprinting form on the unformed materiality of the world, making and fashioning all things. Matter could not have acquired an articulated structure were it not for the directing power of the Logos, who is the Image, Intellect, Wisdom and Providence of God.”

Reality shakes the confidence of Materialists so thoroughly that they must escape into fantasy. They fantasize about a universe governed by randomness. They invent creatures to fit their convergence evolution theory but have no physical evidence for such creatures since they never existed. They attribute Christianity to the Jews and then illogically insist that the Jews corrupted Jesus' true religion by shunning the Gnostics.
